We teased our new feature — Versions — last week. Well, the wait is over. It's here! Starting today, you can now add a new iteration to one of your existing posts instead of editing the post or creating a brand-new post.
Creating a new version is just like creating a new post, but you'll start it within your previous post. Go and edit your post. There'll also be a button for adding a new Version ("Add iteration"). Click that and the post editor will pop up. You'll be able to add images and new text, but won't be able to edit the title. After you create a Version, there will be a link to other iterations in that project at the bottom of each Version. Only two will appear, but if there are more then Forrsters can click over and get a page that lists all the versions.
Each project that has versions will have a badge when it appears in the post stream, saying v# (the number being the amount of iterations). Check it out:
Having your iterations tethered to the original post allows Forrsters to see how you've integrated their feedback and chart your project's progress. It also keeps previous iterations from getting lost in the underbrush. And you'll also be able to get a snapshot on how you've improved upon your design work.
We can't wait to see how you guys use Versions!
